Lopez and Anthony: We're friends

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are "having a lot of fun" together on their new show.

The former couple are currently filming a Latin American reality talent search TV show called Q'Viva.

Jennifer and Marc separated after seven years of marriage last summer.

The pair are enjoying working with one another despite calling it quits on their romantic relationship.

"Well, we're friends. We know each other," Jennifer explained to Entertainment Weekly in a joint interview with Marc. "I don't know if people know that Marc and I know each other. So we have a lot of fun."

Marc has different thoughts on their professional partnership.

"I'm just getting to know her. She's a little difficult, but she's actually not as bad as I thought she'd be," Marc joked. "I was really nervous coming into today, because I had heard nightmare!"

Q'Viva is a show that scouts dancing, singing and entertainment talent all across Latin America. After Jennifer and Marc make their selections, 52 performers will be flown into Los Angeles for auditions to ultimately win the chance to perform in a Las Vegas show.

Jennifer, who is also an American Idol judge, is excited about the being able to help support emerging talent.

"The question is what's going to work for the show, what's going to represent Latin America in a way that we, being of Latino heritage, can be proud of. It's a big responsibility," Jennifer explained. "There's also some people that we found, like this tango couple from Argentina, who are already at a high level, but it's like, Where can they go? Can they be seen outside of Argentina? How far can we help them grow?"

Q'Viva will air this spring.
